Meet The Solar Integrity Team
Solar Integrity is owned by Brett Emo, Luke Fraser and Bobbi McKibbin. Combined we have over 35 years’ experience and in all different aspects of renewable energy industry and small business management.
We employ our own accredited solar installers and electrical apprentices. We do not subcontract our solar installations like many other companies. This allows us to have greater insight into our quality control measures and training of our team.
For our hot water installations we have a carefully chosen small network of installers across the region. This network was developed in our hot water project of 2019/20. It allowed for us to service our customers broadly and efficiently. There are a number of photos required for the hot water rebates, this also feeds in to our quality assurance practices. Even though your hot water installation is contracted out you still remain our customer, therefore if you have any issues at all you only have 1 party to communicate with.
Our team is dedicated to both professional and personal development and participate in regular trainings including product and industry training to health and safety. We are proud that our team easily adapted to the challenges thrown at us in 2020 with the smoke from the bushfires to the Covid-19 pandemic. This was largely due to safety in the workplace being a part of our culture.

In Sydney Luke gained extensive experience in solar hybrid systems (battery backup), with brands like Tesla and LG. Luke loves his off-grid systems, something he missed while in Sydney. Luke has extensive knowledge in all things solar, he also has great ideas on energy efficiency and energy management, in any scenario be it residential, commercial or industrial.

Bobbi McKibbin – Business & Community Engagement Manager
Born and bred a local girl in Yackandandah, Bobbi has been in and around the solar industry since 2006, cutting her teeth in energy efficiency, after all the cheapest power is the power you don’t use.

Bobbi loves being able to assist people with reducing their energy usage be it through energy efficiency or solar power and hot water recommendations.

She also actively assists other community energy organisations from around Australia. Bobbi is also a great advocate for the renewable energy sector and as a result has held a volunteer position on the Clean Energy Council’s Installer Reference Group and also the Victorian Governments Solar Victoria Industry and Consumer Reference Group.
In 2019 Bobbi was award the SolarCutter of the year award. This award is an industry peer award and was awarded based on Bobbi’s above and beyond approach and lobbying the Victorian Government in a state of crisis as the Victorian solar industry ground to a halt when the government put its rebate program on hold for 3 months.
